With the secure web service tiGus, use the data you want, how you want, when you want, where you want, and exchange it with whoever you want, in complete confidentiality

10 years ago, SemWare designed the Web application tiGus, a secured data sharing tool. This application has come to complete the already existing software offer: iGus, a powerful ERP solution, and its procedural companion myGus, an expert in the secured acquisition of data in the field.

TiGus aims to facilitate the communication of operational data, in real time, while ensuring the absolute confidentiality of the data transmitted:

  • internally, between employees belonging to the same company (production management, inventory management, sales management, etc.),
  • externally, between partner companies (clients, suppliers, subcontractors ...).

TiGus is a flexible and easy to use tool. And you are autonomous: unlike other existing tools, with tiGus you do not need a computer engineer to convert the database structure or develop reports and revise them as needs change.

With tiGus, users are at the center of the communication system. They are the real recipients of information. And that is precisely where the originality of SemWare's approach lies! With tiGus, users do not have to wonder where the data come from. They do not need to have special computer skills or knowledge. In fact, users only need a web browser and a tiGus account to access the essential data. And they can view them as easily as if they used a spreadsheet tool.

A wide range of ready-to-use dashboards, covering most of your activity

10 years after its creation, the tiGus Web application totals about XNUMX standard dashboards providing complementary synthetic views on all the data entered or generated in your ERP, as your processes unfold.

These standard dashboards were designed primarily for seed industry players: contract givers, agricultural cooperatives, seed stations. Their goal is to respond quickly to most of the frequently asked questions during seed processing, from the initial reception of the crop to the delivery of the bags containing the finished products:

  • What quantities have been stocked for each seed production contract?
  • What quantities, in tons, have been ordered, manufactured? What quantities still need to be manufactured, purchased? What quantities have been carried over? Per customer and article, per article, per product?
  • What quantities have been consumed and received, per order and type of movement? What is the corresponding loss rate, in kilograms and in percentage?
  • What is the total quantity in stock, all subcontractors considered?
  • What is the quantity in stock, in number of grains?
  • What was the status of the stocks on this or that (prior) date?
  • What are the latest analysis results for the stock in this or that container?
  • What certification movements have been made, per batch?
  • What quantities are available for delivery regarding each article?
  • What shipments were made on behalf of this or that carrier?
  • What are the expected service invoices?
  • Etc.

And if the dashboards currently present in tiGus do not answer all the questions you ask yourself, so the SemWare team will develop specific dashboards, tailored to your needs, for your exclusive use! That is how tiGus has proven its effectiveness in other fields of activity than seed, such as the rail industry.

Confidential and secure access to targeted and up-to-date data

Each user only has access to the data that concerns his function or his mission in the company. The settings of access rights are done for each user profile and for each dashboard. The access to the data is confidential, and you go straight to the main point.

To access his data, each user has his own private space. He can connect when he wants, wherever he is, with the means he has (PC, tablet, smartphone). Thus, data security and flexibility of use go hand in hand, for your comfort.

The data in the tiGus dashboards are the same as those entered or generated in the management software. If the ERP data changes, the data present in the tiGus dashboards are updated automatically. The refresh rate is configurable, in particular according to the user's software configuration. When the database allows it, tiGus favors real time.

A powerful and customizable data analysis tool

Users can manipulate their data at will, customize their standard dashboards as easily as if they were using a spreadsheet, without needing any particular software.

To do all this, they have powerful functions such as filters, control breakdowns, highlighting of lines and cells, calculations and functions (total, average, number of records, number of distinct values, minimum, maximum, median ), aggregations ...

It is also possible to create all kinds of graphics ... And it is easy to switch from the dashboard to the corresponding graph.

Some dashboards even have dynamic navigation, which automatically reduces the number of columns displayed to the one strictly needed by the user. It is very practical when the data are numerous (qualitative characteristics ...).

If they wish, users can keep their customized dashboards in their private space. To do so, they just need to save them. And they can also download them to Excel format or print them to pdf format.

Fully automated data exchange

A contract giver needs to know in real time the status of all his stocks, including those whose propagation is carried out by subcontractors (agricultural cooperatives ...). As for these subcontractors, they need to receive continuous orders from the contract giver.

The tiGus application has been designed to respond to this type of situation, by making communication autonomous between partner organizations (clients, suppliers, subcontractors ...).

These data exchanges are carefully parameterized in the management software: which data will be shared, with whom, according to what frequency, according to which criteria of confidentiality ... Thus, data transfers will be done in a fully automated way, only to the private spaces of the people concerned.

As for the senders, they can at any time check if the data they wish to transfer have been transmitted. For this, all they have to do is connect to their own tigus account.

And this is how :

  • a contract giver can have visibility on all the stocks, all subcontractors considered, using a single dashboard tiGus, updated in real time,
  • a subcontractor can automatically receive his delivery orders, or other standard files, directly in his management software, without having to re-enter them.

An application to be enjoyed without moderation, and without any restriction related to the nature of the management software used

The tiGus application has EDI interfaces, as standard. Thus, with a single application, you can exchange data with whoever you want, even if the management systems are different: the tiGus application plays the role of interface, ensures the compatibility of the exchanges and guarantees the integrity of the exchanged data.

In 10 years, tiGus has successfully orchestrated numerous exchanges of information between various management software in different contexts.

Thus, a contract giver equipped with SAP can subcontract part of its production and manufacturing to different seed stations equipped with the ERP iGus... Thanks to tiGus, this contract giver can send his manufacturing orders to all his subcontractors, in a completely automated way. In this case, the data present in the orders (varieties, quantities ...) are transferred directly from SAP to the ERP iGus, via the tiGus application which plays its role of interface between different ERP. The manufacturing order coming from SAP automatically generates a manufacturing order in the ERP iGus... And there you go!

TiGus has also proven its worth with the BaaN ERP. ERPs of this type manage physical flows. They collect a multitude of data but they do not make it possible to do the reporting or to have an overview on the data stored. Leveraging their long experience of the BaaN software, SemWare have therefore developed a tiGus / BaaN interface to easily consult the data present in the BaaN ERP, in the form of ready-to-use dashboards. In 10 years, several dashboards have emerged:

  • Business, to estimate the overall cost of a project, from all the elements that constitute it,
  • Finance, to group all accounts entries,
  • Justification of 408, to detail the account of accrued invoices,
  • Time tracking, to summarize, per operation, per operator, per week and per day, manufacturing times and manufacturing costs, realized and estimated.
